Grateful without a list! Lotosblute!


I am so grateful to be published in this Haiku book! Giving my African echo to ancient Traditional Japanese poetry! I’m so grateful to Dr. Sylvia Bacher who kept corresponding with be regarding my Haiku, Although only one Haiku is published i’m extremely grateful!


To be published alongside Doctors of literature and philosophy is an honor.



I remain humble and grateful. Thanks to all my followers who believed in me and liked all my Haiku’s, it kept me going, it made me believe that I could do it!


my soul’s breath


I want to be here where my soul can breath

I want to be near the place beneath

the sun.

I wish i could run

far away

to a place i could stay

where my love is.


I wish that love could call

far from it all

and i would run

under the sun

far far away

from this pain i now stay

far away from this day.


i want to breath once more

i want my love before

it goes away

and leaves me where i stay

if you are there beneath

can you come for me?

so my soul can finally breath?

Happy thanksgiving to all!


Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving! Hope you enjoy your day!
